I need your help. I have looked at the websites for birds of Mexico but can’t identify this one. He has a very distinctive bill, long legs like a heron – but shortish neck. Stands about 15 inches high I’d guess. Any clues? Click on images for larger version. Copyright Rod Sprange
Is this a Heron? Please let me know.
He (or she) was standing on the boat slip in the Marina at Marina Vallarta.
